A hugely exciting male/female-fronted quintet, Cosmo Calling met at university in Manchester and after nights spent diving headfirst in to their new city’s music scene, the inevitable happened and the band began to take shape. Taking influence from the visceral likes of Queens of the Stone Age and combining it with the pop sensibilities of Fleetwood Mac, the five-piece quickly found favour both in Manchester, and further afield. Adopting a heavy gigging schedule, Cosmo Calling moved from city to city turning heads and impressing every audience they held regardless of size. A feat that stems from the band’s charismatic front duo Harry Preen and Phoebe Taylor, who use their disparate tones to create infectious melodies that effortlessly cut through the thunderous rhythm section of Darragh Burke, Tom Chapman and Gabriel Alexander.
Having developed a strong local following in Manchester, Cosmo Calling have packed out some of city’s top venues including Soup Kitchen and Night & Day, and most recently played at Gorilla. Now working closely with Scruff of the Neck, Cosmo Calling have built on their early promise, developed the sound that piqued the interest of so many, and have fast become one of the North’s must-see bands.
